It looks like Carly Fiorina will beat Dr. Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee out of the gate: she’ll declare her intention to run for the Republican Presidential nomination on May 4th.
The former CEO of Hewlett Packard will, apparently, follow in the footsteps of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio by announcing with an online video and following up with a call for national press, according to the Wall Street Journal. If the reports are true, she will be the first Republican woman candidate in the field.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina will launch her presidential campaign on May 4, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
Fiorina, a Republican, will announce her campaign online, according to the WSJ.
Sarah Flores, a spokesman for Fiorina, did not confirm the WSJ’s report on Wednesday…Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson (R) also plans to announce his presidential campaign on May 4. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, another likely hopeful, told Fox News earlier this month he would make an announcement May 5 on whether or not he’ll run for president.
She’s running behind many of the more prominent names, but I suspect that will not last. Although Carly is a newcomer to the field, and was an unexpected addition to the Republican lineup, she blew other candidates out of the water at CPAC, her speaking debut. In fact, I would say that she was the most impressive candidate I saw all weekend, possibly because there were no baseline expectations for her. She spoke to a cold, slightly angry room, fresh off of hearing Chris Christie haggle with Laura Ingraham over Common Core, and finished to a standing ovation. I don’t know if she’ll continue to deliver as the campaign ramps up, but she’s off to a good start.
